After analyzing the data, results show that the upper limits for (IVS) was 9 ml, with a mean and SD 7.39±1.00. and for the (LVIDD) the upper limits was 50 ml with mean of 45.32 ml (2.79 ±). For the (LVMI) the upper limits were 61 gm/m² with mean of 48.11 gm/m² (7.61±). and for the percentage of (LVEF) (74%) with a mean of (64.3%) (5.57±). We conclude that most of the diminutions and measurements were within the normal physiological limits.
